Use an external package for transliteration
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Pywikibot allows transliteration of text before writing to files/ttys.

pywikibot/userinterfaces/ - 108K

There are existing packages which try to achieve similar goals, such as

If any of the above are *functional* sufficient for pywikibot needs, we should use it. If there are minor gaps in support for languages, where pywikibot has better transliteration tables, we can push our improvements into the external package.

Otherwise, we start a new project with the pywikibot code so others can reuse and help develop/maintain the code.

bzimport set Reference to bz73410.
bzimport added a subscriber: Unknown Object (????). looks quite nice, and supports latin (that isnt mentioned in the readme).

I am against this proposal. Transliteration is a central point of our framework it is havy to use if a lot of packages are needed before it can work and external packages are out of our scope and couldn't be maintained when or if needed.
